Miller, Jeanne Eloise, 90, went to her heavenly home on December 4, 2017 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She was the widow of Robert “Pug” Miller and a graduate of Stivers High School. Jeanne worked as a stenographer at Wright-Patterson AFB in the 1950s. She retired from the Dayton Public School System where for many years she was Head Secretary at Wilbur Wright High School and later worked at the Board of Education offices. She moved to Winston-Salem in 2007.
Jeanne was described by all who met her as “so sweet.” Her kindness, consideration and concern for others knew no bounds. She loved collecting antiques, doing needlework, but above all, being around her precious family.
Jeanne is survived by a daughter, Linda A. Wellman (Ronald D. Wellman) of Winston-Salem, a son Thomas, of New York City, and a sister, Judy Morgan (William) of Beavercreek, Ohio. Three granddaughters survive her: Angie Lynde (Tim) of Winston-Salem, Melissa Norman (Benjamin) of Greensboro, North Carolina, and Nicole Rice (Kevin) of Winston-Salem. Jeanne had ten great-grandchildren: Connor, Riley and McKalay Lynde; Miller, Emme and Hank Norman; and Cole, Sam, Anna Kate and Molly Rice. She was preceded in death by a sister, Phyllis VonderAhe in 2009. Memorial services in Winston-Salem and in Dayton will follow.

My wife and I taught at Wilbur Wright HS in the 1970's. The faculty and staff (Jeanne included) were family. From the day I started there (Sept. 1970) until I was transferred in 1981 there wasn't a day that I did not enjoy interacting with Jeanne. I know she held many positions in the school ending up as the Secretary to the Principal. We are happy that she lived a long life and was able to enjoy her children, grand-children, and great-grand-children. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sadness.

Aunt Jeanne has been a treasure and inspiration all my life. She was a lovely family-centered woman who truly cared about those around her. My family was blessed by her sweet and generous spirit throughout the years. I know she must have been so proud of both her children as well as her adorable grandchildren, and she left this world with contentment and peace. She'll be as close to you as ever. Love and prayers, Dan and Janet Jones
